DETROIT (AP) - Air Force veteran and actor Tom Skerritt is visiting Wayne State University in Detroit to talk about his project to give veterans and military personnel a voice through storytelling.

The university said in a news release that Skerritt, whose roles include the films “Alien,” ”M.A.S.H.” and “Top Gun,” will give a lecture on campus Thursday afternoon. He’ll talk about the Red Badge Project, which helps military personnel tell their stories.

The project’s website says it teaches participants about storytelling methods including poetry, song, filmography and documentary production.

A military and veteran audience drawn from Wayne State’s student body will attend the lecture. Veterans from the general public are also invited.
